Dental Crowns FAQs – North Carolina

Do you have teeth that are decayed, broken, or missing? Dental Crowns can restore and enhance your teeth. Dental Crowns are one of the most common Dental procedures a dentist performs, they do everything from covering an injured tooth to improving your smile. 

If you have a missing tooth, it’s important to replace it as soon as possible. Your teeth may shift inward around the gap left by your missing tooth. This can lead to even bigger problems, including TMJ. Trust our team for expert bridge work – an exact science that replaces missing teeth both functionally and cosmetically. At Troutman Family Dentistry we offer dental crowns, bridges, and other services to the people of Mebane, NC. Call us to learn more! 919-563-5939

Dental Crowns FAQs

What Is A Dental Crown?

A Dental Crown is a cap your dentist puts over your tooth to replace the natural tooth crown. Dental Crowns are permanently cemented onto teeth that have been broken, injured, or excessively decayed. The Dental Crown restores your tooth’s original shape, size, and function.

  • You had a Root Canal treatment and a Crown is needed to help protect the restored tooth.
  • You had a Dental Implant.
  • Your tooth is discolored or oddly shaped and you want to enhance the appearance of your tooth.

  • Gold Crowns – Are used mainly for back teeth. The main advantages are durability and strength.
  • E – Max Crowns – Is made of a type of all-ceramic crown made of lithium disilicate (light and thin). They are an excellent choice for front and back teeth.
  • Porcelain Crowns – This is the most popular type of crown used nowadays. They are made of porcelain material. Porcelain or ceramic crowns provides the most natural look. They match your teeth in shape, size, and color.
  • Zirconia Crowns – Zirconium is a new material that combines the strength of metal with porcelain crowns.
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal – Another type of dental crown. They provide both strength (due to their metal structure) and aesthetics (due to the porcelain coat that protects the cap). They are less costly than all-porcelain crowns.
